Good Friday trumps baseball in Scranton/Wilkes Barre
2006-04-14 14:59

WNEP-TV in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre has decided not to show the home opener of the local AAA team, the Red Barons because it is Good Friday.

"Good Friday is not an appropriate day for us to do that," C. Lou Kirchen, the station's president and general manager, said on a recent broadcast.

Instead, the station was to air local news, followed by the tabloid show "Inside Edition," an episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and then "Primetime," featuring an interview with Tom Cruise.

What if the people in the area who wanted to watch the game just promised to not enjoy it very much?

Dammit, now I won't be able to watch...Dan Haigwood? Greg Golson?

I'd argue that baseball is a lot more wholesome than "Inside Edition" or even "Primetime," particularly when the latter is talking to Tom Cruise.

Tom Cruise, who stated in an interview recently, that he wasn't going to have his new baby baptized as a Catholic!

That baby could end up in Scientology Purgatory!

A few years ago, I gave up Catholicism for Lent. I forgot to take it back up again when Easter rolled around.

Guilt-free since '03! (If only it were that simple.)

3 I think you mean Limbo, although I think the Church just revised its doctrine to say that babies who die without baptism can now get to heaven, whereas before they were in Limbo forever.

Who says the Church can't change when it wants to?

I used Purgatory because "limbo" is on its way out.

From a theological standpoint, Purgatory isn't correct either, but worked better for those who aren't reading all the way through.
